Swamishri does his morning pooja on Yuva Din amidst a beautiful backdrop

Yuvaks dance as saints sing

Swamishri in a divine mood


Friday, June 11, 2004

    Brahmswarup Yogiji Maharaj used to say, “Yuvako Maaru Hriday Chhe,” which means “Youths are my heart”. Presently, youths experience the same intimacy with His Divine Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj. Yuvaks and Yuvatis of the South East region expressed their love and affection for Swamishri today as part of the Yuva Din celebrations.

    During Swamishri’s morning walk, yuvaks sang kirtans praising Yogiji Maharaj. When Swamishri entered the Yuva Din morning sabha, yuvaks danced with dhols as saints sang “Anand No Rang Dholo Swami…”. Yuvaks performed a skit illustrating how personal satsang declines in yuvaks. At the conclusion of the skit, the yuvaks asked Swamishri to provide techniques to progress in satsang. Swamishri advised the youth to make satsang the highest priority in their lives, and at the same time avoid kusang. In the end, Swamishri sprayed colors on Shri Harikrishna Maharaj, and saints sprayed the sanctified water on the yuvaks.

    In the evening assembly, the Deputy Consul General of Israel to the United States, Mr. Aviv Ezra, presented a proclamation recognizing Swamishri’s efforts to promote non-violence and peace. Saints started singing “Swami Amare Ang …” before Swamishri arrived, and they continued singing until he entered the hall. Swamishri and the devotees were in a very joyous mood. Yuvaks organized a program around three topics: seva, bhakti, and agna-palan. Pujya Doctor Swami described ways to do better seva, and Pujya Viveksagar Swami explained why the bhakti of pragat is more beneficial than paroksh bhakti. Swamishri, during his blessings, elaborated on the three topics presented by the yuvaks during the program and stressed the importance of satsang reading.
